Letter from the President

Allen Hood

We live in exciting yet sobering times. In our own nation, many young adults are hungry for more of Jesus and to walk in the fullness of God’s purpose while many others are selling out for a humanistic and “politically correct” theology that trivializes the glory of Jesus.

We stand at a critical juncture. The Holy Spirit is visiting His people with power, yet the powers of darkness are also raging against America’s moral fabric.

The light is getting brighter as the darkness gets darker. It is time to draw a line in the sand. We must boldly speak what the Spirit is saying, and we must act on it.

The International House of Prayer University (IHOPU) is for students who long to encounter Jesus. Becoming a student at IHOPU is an excellent way to prepare for a life of serving Jesus and others.

Our Bible school functions in the context of night-and-day prayer, equipping students in the Word of God and the power of the Spirit for the bold proclamation of the Lord Jesus and His kingdom.

Our faculty is equipping young leaders who are both zealous for intimacy with Jesus and grounded in sound doctrine. These leaders will equip others to operate in mission outreach and works of justice that flow from deep allegiance to Jesus.

Our curriculum combines in-depth biblical training with discipleship, practical service, outreach, and works of compassion. With schools of ministry, music, media, and missions, our one- to four-year programs prepare students to engage in the Great Commission and obey Jesus’ commandments to love God and people. We seek first to encounter God, and second to love others by becoming prophetic voices to our generation.

I pray that the Lord would strengthen you in His glorious grace and that you would know His abounding love.

I heartily invite you to come and receive ministry training at the International House of Prayer University.

In Christ,

Allen Hood,
President
